Abstract : This report explores the interdependencies among common language, business goals, and software architecture as the basis for a common framework for conducting evaluations of software technical solutions. It also describes the SEI's experience piloting this framework, which integrated commercial technologies, customized open-source systems, and legacy systems, and the insights gained from the project. As described in the report, those insights have enabled the SEI to further refine the framework to make it reusable and applicable for a variety of technical solutions.
